Getting Started in MTG Arena // Part 1

What is MTG Arena? It’s no secret that Magic: The Gathering is one of the biggest names in TCG’s, or CCG’s depending on your naming preference. With their massive presence in the paper card-gaming scene, it was no surprise that Wizards of the Coast had MTG Arena up their sleeve, but what exactly is MTG Arena and how does it compare to paper MTG? If you’re new to MTG (I’m going to assume you are as you’re reading a getting

MTGA Budget Deck // Simic Flash

Simic Flash is both a much loved and much-hated deck in Magic: The Gathering. It’s loved for the fact that you can quite literally shut down your opponent’s game plan by countering all the spells they cast, which is also why it can be infuriating to play against – hence the hated part. This budget build is missing some of the big cards, mainly Nissa, Who Shakes The World. But even with some key cards missing the core game plan

MTGA Budget Deck // Orzhov Lifegain

This budget build of the Orzhov lifegain deck looks to use the Ajani Pridemates and Bloodthirsty Aerialists in tandem with cards like Healer Hawk and Kunoros to build a pretty substantial mid-game threat, in both the air and on the board. Boosting this build with cards like Heliod, Sun-Crown, a playset of Murderous Riders and a playset of Dawn of Hope obviously take the deck out of the ‘budget’ zone, but can really help the deck offer more of a
